I can get quite upset about loved possessions decaying but I guess it is the circle of life in a material sort of way. Before Uppark burnt down it was incedibly shabby inside and I didn't know if I liked it or not.What I hate is new things made to look aged - I'm not talking paint effects on furniture more clothes and soft furnishings.
Pretty much everything i have is ancient, i have been involved in antiques and interiors for well over 20 years, i just do not get this re-worked vintage homeware stuff! There is so much "real" vintage out there, my madonna figure is wrapped in tissue paper and stuffed in a box in Bury at the moment, her first born is also stashed away, if i ever get my shop up and running i wll have them out for peeps to admire, love the patchwork heart, Stephne x
I love the pictures pure eye candy.best wishes Ginny
I have just been given an C18th fine linen sheet - supposedly to cut up - it has a neat handstitched central seam and small silk embroidered initials BSI and the date 1764.I know I will never be able to cut into it, it is developing pinpoint holes so can't take hard wear and I shall probably cart it about in my material stash for the rest of my life,Jx
I am enjoying your blog so refreshing....so inspirational..beautifully written...Jennifer
